RE:Think Innovation: How the World's Most Prolific Innovators Come Up with Great Ideas that Deliver Extraordinary Outcomes by Carla Johnson
About the Book:
RE:Think Innovation makes coming up with great ideas everybody’s business.
People think innovation isn’t sustainable, so they make it much harder than it has to be.
Experts portray it as confusing and complicated so they can charge big fees.
Executives make it intimidating and complex, so they appear smarter and important.
Traditional innovators imply you need a special degree or training to know how to do it right.
The truth is, consistently coming up with great ideas isn’t a talent one is born with or a skill that takes years to learn.
It’s actually a simple 5-step framework that anyone can follow to look at the work that they do differently, and have a bigger impact on the people they serve.
RE:Think Innovation answers the question of how to tie individual competence with innovation techniques to direct corporate outcomes.
Within its pages, Carla Johnson shows how to create a unified, idea-driven employee base that delivers more ideas in a shorter amount of time.
Ultimately, this is the path that makes organizations genuinely nimble, passionate, innovative powerhouses that deliver extraordinary outcomes for sustained periods of time.
